SVG Logo Upload Support?

(Harsh) #1

Hi, So upon running the wizard, instead of using a normal jpeg/png for the logo, I tried to upload an SVG file in place (for primary and compact logo versions) and it didn’t work. Is there anyway there could potentially be support for SVG Logos? It would work perfectly with all screen sizes (as it scales effortlessly) and is extremely compact (my JPEG takes 15kb while my SVG takes 1kb)

The problem is email. Email clients do not like svg.

Ahh okay! That makes sense!

Also if it is a jpeg i suspect it should not be, otherwise it would not translate to SVG well. Have you tried png? Can you post it here?

Yeah, I just ended up realizing that using PNG with a transparent background is actually much more compressible than using JPEG with a white background…

the primary logo is the main annoyance since the added text doesn’t bode well for JPEG Compression, but oh well!

Convert to 8-bit PNG w/alpha (you don’t need more than 256 colors for this) then zopfli:

Gets it down to 6,459 bytes.
